Harsh . . .

No other words to describe that scoreline.
Wolves dominated Sunderland for some periods of Sunday’s game and certainly at least matched them for most of the 90 minutes.
So how did we end up shipping five goals?

Is there a harder working attacking partnership in world football than Andy Keogh and Kevin Doyle?
I don’t think so. It’s rare to find two strikers so willing to run the channels, track back and tirelessly make themselves available for the ball, however many times it doesn’t come to them.
As Mick McCarthy said after the brilliant 2-1 win against Fulham – “Why do Manchester United win games? Because they work hard.”
And that’s how we can stay up this season. There are good reasons why we can’t be the most skillful team in the league, or the cleverest with the ball. But there is no reason at all why we can’t be the hardest working.

Perhaps I’m being greedy but I fancied six points from our first four games. I’ll take four though.
If we hit that total every month we’ll get the magic 40 points that usually guarantees survival.

And the three Ms – Morgan, McCarthy and Moxey – have made some last minute signings that we can be exited about too.
